www.adventures.is We take our course east from Reykjavík along the tabletop mountains and down to Lake Thingvallavatn. Here we stop to visit the National Park Thingvellir where you will see for your self one of only two tectonic rift valleys in the worlds, created as the continental plates slowly drift. Þingvellir is also the only UNESCO’s cultural world-heritage site in Iceland. From there we take the trail behind the picturesque shield volcano Skjaldbreid and along our second biggest glacier, the Langjökull. After about a two hours drive on mountain trails and some river crossing we get back to normal roads again just above Gullfoss waterfall. We will make a short stop and view the spectacular 32 meter high cascade before driving to the Geysir hot springs which are only 10 km down the road. At Geysir we will see a variety of geothermal pools and erupting hot springs, surely one of the highlights of any visit to Iceland. Drumbo river rafting basecamp is our stop for lunch and a great rafting trip on the glacier river Hvítá is the culmination of our adventure. The Hvítá is a beautiful river running through an amazing canyon, with fun rapids and a great optional cliff jump. Afterwards the showers and sauna are at hand before entering the road again. This trip offers an amazing ride through the landscapes and natural forces that have shaped and continue to shape Iceland.
